The CEO of Bulldog Drummond shares the story of a successful startup whose founders live in two different locations.

I’m fortunate to meet and work with a wide range of industrious and passionate founders of early stage businesses, and I’m always fascinated to hear about new and unique challenges they face when starting a new business. I met the founders of Sneakz Organic about six months ago while working with one of our other early stage ventures. I was inspired by their vision and the challenge of starting a business with the two founders based in different locations. Sneakz’ goal is to help kids (and adults) who aren’t getting enough veggies in their daily diet by sneaking vegetable nutrition into multiple products in different aisles of the grocery store. Their first product is a chocolate milkshake that sneaks in a full serving of vegetables, via sweet potatoes, carrots and broccoli. It’s a healthier alternative to standard chocolate milks, with more fiber and less sugar, and all the nutrition coming from whole foods.
